EDIX®: Ensuring Protection & Comfort for Your Horse
An EDIX® treeless saddle offers your horse optimum pressure distribution using the special layers of flexible materials: EDIX® MPDS, multiple pressure distribution system (see drawing). These soft, flexible layers adapt to the anatomy of the horse, as well as the rider’s posture. An EDIX® treeless saddle optimally reacts to the movements of the horse. Partly due to this, the rider learns to adapt to the horse’s movements and, as such, develops an independent position. As a result, the movements of the horse and rider become one, and from there, excellent communication is created. Because the horse is moving much more freely, it has the possibility to develop optimally, which is often shown by an increase in muscle mass. Due to the above and after the habituation period, both horse and rider, show in all aspect of horse riding more relaxation and a more fluid movement.
The pommel is made of fiberglass and the cantle of a soft high density foam. Both connect the left and right half of the saddle and together offer stability to the saddle and comfort for the rider. Due to the saddle’s special construction there is a freedom of movement for the spine.

Complete Set or Saddle Only
EDIX® recommends purchasing a treeless saddle as a complete package, including stirrups, stirrup leathers and a matching special treeless saddle pad including inlays. The special treeless saddle pads are through their construction an addition on the pressure distributing materials of treeless saddles. The EDIX® pads are anatomically shaped and equipped with the correct inlays ensure freedom of movement for the spine. If required, additional pressure and position distributing material can be added. The position-correcting material can be added in the upper insert compartments, so that you can temporarily improve a saddle position. EDIX® offer various models of pads that fit under the Vika saddle. There is a choice between saddle pads with a felt base and finished with a synthetic wool, or a foam based saddle pad finished with an Australian Merino sheepskin. If necessary, additional pressure distributing and / or position correcting material can be added in the upper insert pockets.
All EDIX® pads are specially designed for the EDIX® treeless saddles, but also fit under many other treeless saddles.
The EDIX® Vika all-round saddle can be combined with the EDIX® saddlebags and breastplate, for which various rings have been fitted The EDIX® anatomical soft leather padded elastic girth and the fully elastic girth of F.R.A. are optional but their elasticity ensure a rock-solid fixation of your saddle and freedom for the horse to expand his belly.
In order to ensure constant firm fixation, we recommend a fully or partly elastic girth for a consistently fixed position. A durable elasticity tailored to your horse’s strength, which will save your saddle from undesirable forces that are caused by the varying abdominal circumference of your horse while riding. The elastic of the girth always adjusts itself in length and has the possibility to keep the saddle in place with constant tension. Besides the EDIX® anatomical soft leather padded elastic girth we also offer the fully elastic girth of F.R.A.
The saddle only VIKA set includes:
- Pommel Size Choice (Western or English) – Free fitting guide
